In this paper, we approximate an arbitrary fuzzy number by a polynomial fuzzy number through minimizing the distance between them. Throughout this work, we used a distance that is a meter on the set of all fuzzy numbers with continuous left and right spread functions. To support our claims analytically, we have proven some theorems and given supplementary corollaries.
